PyLadies ATX (Free)

This meetup is a reserved timeslot for any special technical talks if we have one.
If no topic is specified for the meetup, we'll open the floor to open presenting and then open coding. What this entails: If you have a short talk about something Python related, i.e. "This library or API is amazing and I made this with it" You can flex those presenting skills in a very welcoming environment.
After that we'll open the night to social coding. If you have a problem you want to work on or bounce some ideas off on, bring it to the meetup! We're happy to help and chat about it.
